Tobacco-Free Schools Signs

These signs are made available to all public schools in Vermont, made possible through a partnership with the Vermont Department of Health 802Quits program. These signs will help you inform your school community about tobacco-free schools. This tobacco-free signage is inclusive of both smoking, smokeless tobacco products and tobacco substitutes (such as e-cigarettes) and sends the message that no tobacco is safe to use: anywhere, by anyone, at any time.

The Real Cost Campaign: brought to you by the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products

“You already know that tobacco is bad for you. What you may not know is that experimenting with cigarettes is not cost-free — even the first few cigarettes can exact a price. We created “The Real Cost” to give you what you need to know — facts based on science, facts you can judge for yourself. Our goal is to reduce the number of teens who experiment with smoking and become lifelong tobacco users.”
